Being a dutiful worker she has done well and is very proud of the high status position she has achieved within the household's servants. She considers herself most fortunate to have such kind employers.

Will provides direction for the group on arms and armour and assists with new recruits.
William Tanner has never been a tanner, nor was his father John, who signed his indenture as an archer as soon as he took one whiff of the tanning vats. John did well in France, and survived long enough to sire sons and amass a bit of property. After he died at Castillon his sons followed in his footsteps, serving as soldiers themselves. Will’s older brother inherited enough to become a man at arms, but his younger brother Will can only afford to equip himself as an archer, and he’s served as one since the Wars began over ten years ago. Will is always looking for ways to better his place in the world, and Lord Grey’s generous cheese rations sounded pretty good, so he signed up and so far has not regretted it.
~ Will is married and lives in Maryland, where he helps develop software for cell phones and other devices .
